    Never afraid to cop a new style or try something that might not work, Architecture in Helsinki has thrown listeners for a loop yet again.

    My problem is that AIH don't really give much away. There isn't any real personality on show. It could be any musicians.

    The new record goes too far toward buffing out the quirks of its predecessor, mistaking studio compression and unexciting genre exercises for more focused songwriting.

    Unfortunately it ends up as the kind of glossily produced "perfect pop" you can spin a dozen times without ever remembering a single tune. [May 2011, p.77]
